The Tampa Bay Rays placed second baseman Brandon Lowe on the 10-day injured list with a right patella fracture on Saturday and selected outfielder Raimel Tapia to the roster.

The Rays also placed right-handed reliever Jason Adam on the 15-day IL with a left oblique strain and recalled fellow right-hander Chris Devenski from Triple-A Durham.

The move for Lowe is retroactive to Friday. Manager Kevin Cash said Lowe will be sidelined four to six weeks due to the injury, sustained when he hit a ball off his knee during Thursday's 5-4 win over the Los Angeles Angels.

Lowe, 29, is batting .231 with 21 homers and 68 RBIs in 109 games this season. He is a career .245 hitter with 105 homers and 305 RBIs in 504 games with the Rays.

Tapia, 29, is a career .273 hitter with 29 homers and 201 RBIs in 626 games with the Colorado Rockies (2016-21), Toronto Blue Jays (2022), Boston Red Sox (2023) and Milwaukee Brewers (2023).

Adam, 32, had an MRI after being removed from Friday's 6-2 loss to the Blue Jays. He is 4-2 with a 2.98 ERA and 12 saves in 56 relief appearances this season.

Devenski, 32, has gone 1-2 with a 4.15 ERA in six relief appearances since signing with Tampa Bay on Aug. 29. He began the season with the Angels.
